Amadi.
The Rivers State Government wishes to warn all security personnel in the state that Government will not spare any persons found engaging in unwholesome and unprofessional conduct.
It wishes to remind all security personnel that the main objective of government is to secure lives and properties and it will not relinquish that right.
It also calls on all citizens and residents to take appropriate note and document any security personnel behaving improperly and who is compromised and forward same to the Rivers State Government.
All such personnel will face the full weight of the law; and for those who may escape prosecution now, definitely when the new government takes over on May 29, 2015.
Security Agents are advised to conduct themselves in a proper manner as the law is no respecter of persons.
